    Q: I have been enlisted into National Service (NS). Can I still attend the Graduation Ceremony?

    Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) are informed of the graduation dates, they try their best to arrange for recruits to be released for part of the day to attend the Graduation Ceremony.  However, parents and graduands should note that the final decision as to whether NS men will be released from camp to attend the Graduation Ceremony lies with MINDEF.  The release of NS men is subject to exigencies of service and to the training schedules of units.  Approval will be given based on the unit's training requirements and practice.  NS men who wish to attend the Graduation Ceremony and who need the cover letter* enclosed in the Graduation Package to apply for time-off from their unit's Officer after their enlistment are therefore strongly advised to register their graduation attendance by the stipulated deadline. 
     
    *The cover letter will only be sent to graduands who have indicated that they will be attending the graduation ceremony.  The letter will be sent together with your admission ticket, to your correspondence address about 1½ weeks before the start of the Graduation Ceremony. 
     
    Please note that NS men are expected to follow the dress code for the ceremony.  SP's graduation gown should not be worn over any army uniform.  NS men are urged to seek approval from their unit commanders to be released from camp early enough for them to go home to change into their proper graduation gown for the ceremony.  Otherwise arrangements will need to be made for your civilian clothes to be brought to SP for you to change on campus.

    Q: When and how will I know whether I have been awarded the Diploma with Merit and/or prize(s)?
